The eight storey building by Salmon Harvester Properties Ltd will be located close to Bristol Temple Meads station and Brunel floating harbour, and will include ground floor retail uses. It is being developed on a brownfield site.
Chris Darling, Managing Director, Darling Associates, comments,
“3 Glass Wharf will set a new benchmark for office architecture in the Bristol regional market. The design is intended to celebrate the industrial heritage of the area, and in particular the glass production that took place at the riverside site.
“Appropriately, we have incorporated the use of glass in the design in a very contemporary way, featuring shimmering glass facades, floor to ceiling glazing and frame-less glass balustrades that maximise views and elevate the amenity spaces, while balconies provide the solar shading”.
The design also includes a landscaped public space facing the river front, providing a spill out space from the main riverside pedestrian route.
